Kemal Kilicdaroglu was the winner in the Turkish election ballots set up in occupied Cyprus, as he garnered 54.16% of the vote.

The Turkish opposition’s candidate performed far better than incumbent Tayyip Erdogan who received the support of 38.55% of the people who turned up to vote.

Also, according to Turkish Cypriot media, 3.9% voted for Sinan Ogan and 3.34% for Muharrem Ince.

Voting for the Turkish elections in Cyprus started on April 27 and ended on May 9. For the parliamentary elections, the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported that 35.46% of voters in Cyprus voted for the CHP, 29.84% for the AKP, 6.94% for the Good Party, 6.75% for the MHP, 6.81% for the Green Left Party, 4.95% for the Worker’s Party, while the rest of the votes went to smaller parties.

According to Cyprus News Agency, a total of 140,111 people were eligible to vote for the Turkish elections in Cyprus, with the turnout rising to 58.9% (82,587 votes).

This marks a significant rise in voter turnout compared to the 2018 Turkish presidential and parliamentary elections, where 40.22% of the 106,446 registered voters exercised their electoral rights.

...in effect even ''Cypriot Turks'' want change, in Turkey. (interestingly it is one thing that they agree upon with Turkish Cypriots)

According to Turkish Cypriot media, Erdogan supporters formed convoys of vehicles, adorned with Turkish flags and posters bearing his face, circling through the streets of occupied Nicosia. Many also displayed banners with the face of Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish flag from their balconies. Celebrations were also observed in other cities in Cyprus.

In the first round, Kılıçdaroğlu received 54.16% of the vote, while Erdogan received 38.55%.

This idea that TCs who can vote in Turkish Elections are pro Erdogan is just another myth. Unlike Turks in Europe who's majority do vote for Erdogan. Apparently a lot of TCs were given Turkish Passports back in 2007 when Erdogan realised that all the TCs are applying for RoC passports.

Interesting comment Bahceli made. he claimed that if the west tries fuck Erdogan, they will not be able to do it. The fact he has been in bed with them for 20 years and did everything they asked for does not occur to him. The west fucks all the developing world every which way every fuckin day.

...for the record.


They are not sliding in to poverty RW they were always in poverty since 1960 when the financial arrangement in the constitution was not enough to sustain the TCs, which is where Turkey got a foothold in controlling the TCs by the financial help they had to provide. I was recently there and yes I can confirm that some things are more expensive in the north than the south which is why TCs do some of their shopping in the south. But at the same time some things are cheaper in the north than the south and hence you see plenty of GCs in the north buying petrol and other stuff too.

Of course the living standards have always been below poverty standards of the RoC but our GRoC government decided to treat TCs different to the GCs who were in poverty on account that they were not GC, like withdrawal of healthcare. I know fascists here will claim they have not paid into the the system and all that and yet GCs who have not contributed to the system seem to have no problem claiming healthcare. In any case the TCs do contribute to healthcare for the system in the north. On one side the north is not GRoC responsibility but at the same time it is their occupied lands.

It is time to decide which it is. You have to pick a lane as the old saying goes. These double standards are turning TCs who supported the peace process off.

Absolute rubbish,

The TCs had 30% "shares" in the 1960's "agreements"

Which is the equivalent of 50% more than the average GC. The GC's shouldn't have to be made to sustain the TC's through "financial arrangements".

Back then the TC's where extorting the GC's politically and financially and to be fair nothing has changed. Its just been limited and its harder for the TC's to do now.

The GC's would probably be 50% poorer if they had to carry the TC's into the 21st under the 1960's "agreements". Since that shackle has been unlocked as a result of the segregation, left to their own devices, the TC's have regressed while the GC's have progressed and continue building a prosperous modernized state with rights for all its citizens to live and work legally anywhere in Europe. This was something the TCs were against but now, they come looking to claim their EU Cypriot passports so they can leave the dire state they have put themselves in. The Cypriot passport today is one of the most desirable and strongest passports in the world, and that is all thanks to the GC's.

The TC (minority) can under no circumstance have a veto against the GC (majority) ever again.

You just have to get over yourselves Bordo. The truth is, the TC's have done nothing positive for Cyprus, ever. Why you think the TC's should have a 50% say as a a community, that is probably no larger than 10% of the population now is undeserving and just plain wrong.

Even Cyprus exclusive economic zone south of the green line you want to give to Turkey. :roll:

...'we' were/are not told the truth (some good examples Lordo), and so it boils down to values; 'our' choices.

...''north'' and ''south'' appear to be the same in that regard (constructing Truth to suit "Them"), and why i suggest that actually Cypriots do not have representation as Cypriots, why they must demonstrate for this change themselves.

Make no mistake, those of 'us' against ''This'' (generally but in Cyprus in particular) have the power to act...

...at the polls let's not forget as voters 'we' are not few.

...and if Cypriots decided to eat souvla together on their beach, if they marched together on their streets, who would be against it?
